Breakers Hotel Expansion
Originally built in the early 1900’s as the crown jewel in Henry Flagler’s resort empire, the Breakers Hotel in Palm Beach, Florida has set the benchmark for fine resort hotels for over 100 years. Keeping this property at the forefront of luxury is a challenge taken on by Weitz Construction Company through an on-going program of upgrades, remodeling and site improvements. When Weitz Construction needed to add a strong survey component to assist them in these tasks, they called upon Carnahan Proctor and Cross, Inc.
Most recently the CPC team performed detailed surveying of the back of house area for an expansion of the main mechanical (engine) room. This task included detailed topography of the back of house and loading dock areas, as well as investigation into existing utilities for which no plans existed, and whose very existence wasn’t known. The CPC team worked closely with Weitz staff on-site to determine the in-house service connection points of gas, power, water and sanitary utilities and successfully mapped the site in accordance with ASCE Level A standards. Successful completion of survey tasks required precision surveying, non-destructive vacuum excavation of utilities, and detailed mapping in a 3D environment.
